GAME RECAP

Rik Smits scored 10 of his 24 points in the second quarter and Reggie Miller added 13 as the Indiana Pacers won their 10th straight home game, remaining perfect against the Toronto Raptors with an 89-77 victory.

Travis Best chipped in 11 points and five assists for the Pacers, who have not lost at Market Square Arena since November 22nd against the Charlotte Hornets. The team has won three games in a row and 10 of its last 12.

John Wallace netted 18 points off the bench and Damon Stoudamire had 17 and six assists for Toronto, which lost its fourth straight contest overall and third in a row on the road. The Raptors have dropped all three meetings with Indiana this season and are 0-11 all-time against the Pacers.

"It seems as if they had us playing at their level for a while," said Smits. "It made it interesting and we thought that we were going to have an easy game tonight. And we didn't. Coach Bird cautioned us as there are no easy games in the NBA."

Smits, who also grabbed 13 rebounds, scored seven points in the first quarter to help Indiana to a 21-18 lead. Toronto last led at 10-8 with 5:15 left until Smits' dunk capped a 7-0 spurt that gave Indiana the lead for good.

The margin was 29-25 with 6:46 left in the second period before Smits tallied the final eight points of a 13-2 run that bumped the gap to 42-27 with 2:26 to go. He finished with 17 points at the break with the Pacers up, 50-37.

"We didn't come out like we have been," said Indiana coach Larry Bird. "The starting unit, other than Rik (Smits), wasn't into it. The bench came in with some energy and helped us tonight."

Toronto rallied by scoring the first seven points of the third quarter, including a dunk by Reggie Slater that cut it to 50-44 with 9:34 to go. But Smits' 12-footer ended a 6-1 burst that extended Indiana's lead back to 64-50 with 3:30 left.

The Raptors trailed 69-59 after three periods and again rallied with a 7-2 run to start the fourth quarter. Wallace had the final four points in the surge that narrowed the deficit to 71-66 with 9:17 to play.

The gap was still five points 2:22 later before Fred Hoiberg nailed a three-pointer, Jalen Rose scooped in a layup and Best converted a three-point play to make it 82-69 with 4:55 to go.

"It was a good game and that's a good basketball team," said Toronto coach Darrell Walker. "Indiana is a very deep, very physical, very good team. They're one of the top two or three teams in the East. They're solid at every position."

Hoiberg netted 10 points and Antonio Davis grabbed 10 rebounds for Indiana, which shot better from the field (52 percent, 37-of-71) than the foul line (50 percent, 12-of-24).

Doug Christie and Shawn Respert each scored 10 points and Oliver Miller pulled down 12 boards for Toronto, which shot 42 percent (28-of-67) but made 4-of-7 three-pointers.

"This must have been like a practice for them," said Stoudamire. "It's not like we played bad, they're a good team, a deep team. We don't have a bench. We've got to do what we can to maintain right now."
